Flow over Plates with Suction through Porous Strips Academic Article uri icon


  • THIS paper addresses the steady, incompressible, twodimensional flow past a flat plate with suction through porous strips. Closed-form solutions for each flow quantity are developed in the context of linearized triple-deck theory using Fourier transforms. To demonstrate the validity of these closed-form solutions, we compare the wall shear stress and pressure coefficients and the stream wise velocity profiles from the linearized theory with those obtained by the numerical integration of both interacting and nonsimilar boundary-layer equations. The agreement between the linearized triple-deck and interacting boundary-layer equations is good; however, the nonsimilar boundary layers, which fail to account for upstream influence, are shown to be in poor agreement with both interacting boundary layers and the linearized triple deck. The linearized closed-form solutions will therefore be very useful in future stability calculations. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., 1981. All rights reserved.
